THE SINGLE Fin Mingle<br />

surf competition and<br />

festival’s international<br />

reputation is growing, as<br />

is its field of overseas<br />

competitors.<br />

Forty of the event’s 88<br />

long-boarders will travel to<br />

Sumner for the festival –<br />

which starts tomorrow – from<br />

overseas destinations including<br />

Finland, the United States,<br />

Japan and Brazil.<br />

Festival founder and director<br />

Ambrose McNeill is excited<br />

by the growing international<br />

presence.<br />

“It’s our biggest international<br />

draw yet, which is really<br />

exciting,” McNeill said.<br />

“It’s a new buzz.”<br />

The competition will be held<br />

on Friday and Saturday,<br />

with 52 men and 36 women<br />

competing for championship<br />

titles and a share of the $7000<br />

prize pool.<br />

Sumner surfer Luke<br />

O’Neill is back to defend the<br />

title he won for the first time<br />

last year.<br />

He has competed in the<br />

event every year since it began<br />

in 2015 and won the men’s<br />

championship for the first time<br />

last year.<br />

He will be competing<br />

against top surfers including<br />

Australian Kai Ellice-Flint<br />

and Ignacio Pignataro from<br />

Uruguay.<br />

up to three minutes.<br />

Large line-up for pumpkin festival<br />

• By Tony Simons<br />

THE LARGEST, ugliest and<br />

most perfect will be on show at<br />

Little River on Sunday.<br />

It’s the township’s annual<br />

pumpkin festival, a regular<br />

event for nearly 30 years that<br />

focuses on the prize for the<br />

biggest pumpkin – a record held<br />

by Mike Rask, who produced a<br />

250kg monster in 2019.<br />

The first festival was in 1996.<br />

Seedlings germinated in spring<br />

have travelled from all over the<br />

country to be carefully nurtured,<br />

fed and watered in an attempt<br />

to win the ultimate “big boy”<br />

accolade, said festival marketing<br />

leader Sandra Tuckwell.<br />

The big ones don’t taste<br />

too good, but they pull in the<br />

crowds.<br />

Pumpkins of all kinds can<br />

win prizes, including the widest,<br />

smallest and best dressed, Tuckwell<br />

said.<br />

Thousands of visitors come<br />

from all around the South Island<br />

to enjoy the event, she said.<br />

The festival also features<br />

music and dance, country stalls,<br />

sideshows and the famous Little<br />

River pumpkin soup.<br />

The rules are simple: all pumpkins<br />

entered must be pumpkins,<br />

no steroids can be used, and any<br />

pumpkin weighing over 600kg<br />

HUGE: Posing on last year’s giants are Fiona Matheson-<br />

Grant (left) and Wendy, Brendon and Nathan Walker.<br />

must have its own truck.<br />

The winning ‘big boy’<br />

pumpkin will be displayed<br />

outside the Little River Cafe for<br />

the next three weeks.<br />

In September, O’Neill was a<br />

finalist at the Gliding Barnacles<br />

competition in Portugal.<br />

But nothing beats competing<br />

against international surfers on<br />

his home break.<br />

“To host something like this<br />

in Sumner is really cool,” he<br />

said.<br />

O’Neill is excited to see the<br />

festival attract some big surfing<br />

names to Christchurch for<br />

another year.<br />

“It’s showcasing what New<br />

Zealand has to offer and<br />

comparing that against the<br />

international field,” he said.<br />

O’Neill said The Single<br />

Fin Mingle is a way for New<br />

Zealand surfers to prove<br />

they can compete at an<br />

international level in their own<br />

backyard.<br />

“It’s kind of a good testing<br />

ground,” O’Neill said.<br />

He will compete against one<br />

of his surfing icons, Australian<br />

Kai Ellice-Flint.<br />

“I really look up to his<br />

CHALLENGER: Brittany Andrews goes surfing with her dad Mark.<br />

• By Heidi Slade<br />

BRITTANY ANDREWS grew<br />

up surfing with her dad in<br />

Sumner – but she will be compete<br />

against some of the world’s best at<br />

her eighth Single Fin Mingle.<br />

“It’s so awesome to think<br />

that people come from all over<br />

the world to little old Sumner,”<br />

Andrews said.<br />

“The level of surfing is<br />

amazing.”<br />

The 26-year-old has made<br />

friends with surfers from around<br />

the world at The Single Fin<br />

Mingle.<br />

“The vibes are always very<br />

good. It’s sort of the one event we<br />

all look forward to every year.”<br />

Her dad Mark, 64, surfs<br />

competitively in events such as<br />

The Duke Festival of Surfing in<br />

New Brighton at the weekend<br />

with his twin brother Steve.<br />

Andrews started entering<br />

competitions when she finished<br />

high school. She made it through<br />

to the quarter-finals at last year’s<br />

Single Fin Mingle.<br />

One of her favourite aspects of<br />

the event is its inclusivity.<br />

“It’s awesome, like they’ve got<br />

equal prize money for women<br />

and men,” she said.<br />

<strong>March</strong> is<br />

B Corp month<br />

Christchurch pioneers are making<br />

business better for the city<br />

Sustainable business is a growing movement that<br />

aims to create significant impact on the environment<br />

and society. Increasingly, consumers are choosing<br />

brands that align with their values and businesses are<br />

picking up on it. In a recent survey by the Canterbury<br />

Employers’ Chamber of Commerce, two-thirds of<br />

local businesses said they considered sustainability<br />

when making decisions while almost a third said<br />

sustainability was at the front of their minds.<br />

Enter B Corp, a certification that has been available in<br />

New Zealand since Christchurch business Eagle Protect<br />

became the first to be accredited in 2014. Rather than being<br />

driven solely by profit, B Corps are grounded in environmental<br />

and social good. As it was for women’s suffrage, Christchurch<br />

was the birthplace of the movement in New Zealand.<br />

The application to be certified has a rigorous structure so the<br />

B Corp journey is at the leading edge of the sustainability<br />

movement. Businesses can tell their stories about the good<br />

they’re doing for the planet, but getting the B Corp stamp<br />

of approval really puts those claims to the test. The ‘B’ let’s<br />

customers instantly recognise they are buying from a brand<br />

that is doing a business in a different way.<br />

Early adopters leading<br />

the B Corp movement<br />

This growing Ōtautahi-based beauty and wellness brand<br />

has generated more than $30m in online sales and earned<br />

their B Corp certification last year.<br />

The highest rated B Corp in New Zealand is in Christchurch.<br />

A social enterprise providing commerical and financial<br />

advice to social enterprises who use 100% of their profits to<br />

support KidsCan in Ōtautahi and Habitat for Humanity, NZ.<br />

Christchurch-based, this trusted brand is part of the<br />

KMD Brands group who recently became one of the first<br />

multinational companies to have all its brands – Kathmandu,<br />

Rip Curl and Oboz – individually certified as B Corps.<br />

Just 100 businesses are certified in<br />

Aotearoa as of <strong>March</strong> <strong>2023</strong>, with 16<br />

of those in Christchurch.<br />

Founded by an ex-accountant, an educator, a designer and<br />

a developer in 2015 and now based in Christchurch, Banqer<br />

builds financial life skills through an online platform to<br />

create life-long impact for its users.<br />

What does B Corp mean for the wellbeing of Christchurch?<br />

Christchurch City Council has set a target to halve Christchurch’s<br />

emissions by 2030 and become carbon zero by 2045. B Corps<br />

show the way forward for other businesses as they adapt to a<br />

reduced carbon economy.<br />

ChristchurchNZ is leading a piece of work on behalf of the city to<br />

develop a long-term Economic Ambition for our city. A draft will<br />

go out for consultation shortly, but in essence our proposed city<br />

ambition is to move from an extractive to a regenerative economy.<br />

Moving to a regenerative economy means shifting away from<br />

market systems that rely on depleting our resources to generate<br />

profit, towards an economy that unlocks the potential for<br />

businesses to benefit people and the planet. This is strongly<br />

aligned with the B Corp ethos.<br />

Another Christchurch beauty brand that is arguably the<br />

most well-known local climate-focussed company. Ethique<br />

only makes products that are plastic-free, cruelty free,<br />

vegan and palm oil free, works directly with producers to<br />

ensure fair pay and sustainable practices and donates<br />

2% of sales to charity.<br />

Are proud to be a B Corp certified company playing a<br />

part in creating an inclusive and sustainable economy.<br />

All Kiwibank actions, from sustainable lending to support<br />

of financial education programmes, contribute to making<br />

Kiwis better off.<br />

Jeuneora COO<br />

Colleen Itterman<br />

and CEO & founder<br />

Monique Kaminski at the<br />

company’s distribution<br />

centre in Christchurch.<br />

Why?<br />

Because we love our city, and we want our people to have it all.<br />

Prosperity. Possibility. Purposeful careers. Equal opportunity.<br />

Balanced places for people and nature.<br />

Time and space for play.<br />

This Christchurch B Corp Consultancy company practice<br />

what they preach and became the third Ōtautahi business<br />

to get certified back in 2016. To date, they have helped<br />

more than 100 companies successfully navigate the B Corp<br />

Impact Assessment.

Professor gives back to old school<br />

• By Darryl Baser<br />

A FORMER Linwood High<br />

School head boy has donated a<br />

collection of history books he<br />

has worked on and two artworks<br />

to Te Aratai College.<br />

Professor Geoff Rice was at<br />

Linwood High in 1964 before the<br />

school was renamed Linwood<br />

College then Te Aratai College<br />

last year.<br />

Rice received a New Zealand<br />

Order of Merit in 2021 for<br />

services to historical research<br />

and education.<br />

His first book, Black<br />

November, on the 1918 influenza<br />

pandemic in New Zealand was<br />

used by the Ministry of Health<br />

in its pandemic action plan<br />

released in response to the 2006<br />

bird flu pandemic.<br />

Rice said it felt like the right<br />

time to give something back to<br />

his old school.<br />

“My grandson started<br />

there this year, it made me<br />

think: ‘Perhaps it is time I did<br />

something for the school’.”<br />

Sixteen of the books donated<br />

were written by Rice, including<br />

Black November. He also had<br />

three gifts for the school.<br />

“I also donated a little Oamaru<br />

stone sculpture of a half opened<br />

door to symbolise the door of a<br />

library always being open.”<br />

If it wasn’t for his old school,<br />

the now retired professor very<br />

nearly didn’t become the history<br />

expert he is now.<br />

In his last year of high school,<br />

Rice said he was “dead keen on<br />

becoming an artist and teaching<br />

art.”<br />

“I actually sat the fine arts<br />

prelim in my last year at school<br />

and passed it, but my headmaster<br />

and Jim Ormond, the deputy<br />

principal, took me aside one day.<br />

“Jim said to me: ‘Your artistic<br />

talent will be with you the rest of<br />

your life but [history] is the best<br />

way to get a degree’,” he said.<br />

Rice also gifted a painting<br />

which references a mural he<br />

created as a student in 1963 in<br />

the library. The painting was<br />

destroyed along with the library<br />

and staff room in a fire at the<br />

school 1975.<br />

He said he was also motivated<br />

to give back to the school which<br />

set him up for life.<br />

“I had a very good grounding<br />

at Linwood High School as it was<br />

then. We had really keen young<br />

staff fresh out of teachers’ college<br />

and I got a very good education<br />

at Linwood.”<br />

Te Aratai College principal<br />

Richard Edmundson said the<br />

gifts will remind the students of<br />

GIFTED: Professor Geoff Rice with Te Aratai College year 13 student Jason Prakash, Dormay<br />

Laufiso from year 12, and Thomas Rhodes from year 13. Right – Rice was Linwood High<br />

School head boy in 1964.<br />

the school’s rich past.<br />

“It’s a wonderful example of<br />

community, of people valuing<br />

their own schooling, and<br />

wanting to pass on the good<br />

things that have happened<br />

in their lives to the next<br />

generation,” Edmundson said.<br />

“Our school, the rebuild, is a<br />

post-earthquake success story of<br />

Christchurch east. When the east<br />

side of the city is strong it helps<br />

the whole of the city to be strong<br />

and I’d argue more prosperous.”<br />

The new campus is set grow<br />

to facilitate 1800 students “in a<br />

number of years.”<br />

Sumner avoids relegation, but<br />

no milestone for Dan Vann<br />

• By Jaime Cunningham<br />

SUMNER’S championship<br />

grade cricket team have escaped<br />

relegation over the weekend, at<br />

the cost of a major Dan Vann<br />

milestone.<br />

Going into the last day of the<br />

two-day match on Saturday,<br />

Sumner needed to bat for majority<br />

of the day for a win or draw<br />

against Lancaster Park to avoid<br />

dropping to the division 1 grade<br />

next season.<br />

Sumner finished on 219/5 for<br />

a draw, led by a century from<br />

captain Boston Fielding (112 not<br />

out from 160 balls) and Brett<br />

Taylor’s 58.<br />

Although the team avoided<br />

relegation, batting for the full<br />

day prevented Dan Vann from<br />

gaining the three more wickets<br />

he needed to reach a 500 wicket<br />

milestone for the club.<br />

“In terms of not bowling, I<br />

wasn’t too fussed. I’d much rather<br />

see the team do well,” Vann said.<br />

In October, the 39-year-old<br />

became the second Sumner<br />

player to bring up 400<br />

appearances for the side, and is<br />

the highest wicket taker for the<br />

Dan Vann<br />

club with 497.<br />

Vann will make fewer apperances<br />

for Sumner next season, as<br />

running his coaching business,<br />

teaching part-time at Chisnallwood<br />

Intermediate and playing<br />

has become too much to balance.<br />

“It would of been nice to get to<br />

that milestone this season but I<br />

am sure I will play a few games<br />

next season, I just won’t be as<br />

committed in terms of playing<br />

every week,” Vann said.<br />

Vann said Saturday’s result<br />

was big for Sumner, as fielding a<br />

championship side ensures the<br />

club is playing at a competitive<br />

standard.<br />

“It’s a grade that players want<br />

to play so it makes it easier to<br />

recruit players. We have been<br />

battling a bit for numbers this<br />

season so we will be need to<br />

recruit well over the off season,”<br />

he said.<br />

Sumner’s prizegiving also took<br />

place on Saturday, with Fielding<br />

taking out the major awards,<br />

including best all-rounder, most<br />

runs for his team and club, and<br />

the sports award for most points<br />

through catches, runs, wickets<br />

and run outs.<br />

Nawid Mohammady was<br />

awarded the most improved<br />

player for Sumner and his<br />

championship side, alongside the<br />

award for the most wickets.<br />

Scorecard:<br />

Sumner 168/10,<br />

Bibin Babu 41, Nathan<br />

Wingham 3/23 and<br />

219/5, Boston Fielding<br />

112 not out, Brett Taylor<br />

58, drew with Lancaster<br />

Park 105/10, Nick Cooke<br />

25, Nawid Mohammady,<br />

4/38.<br />

RESULT: Sumner<br />

captain Boston<br />

Fielding’s century on<br />

Saturday ensured<br />

Sumner stays in<br />

the championship<br />

grade next season,<br />

finishing on 112 not<br />

out. However, Dan<br />

Vann did not have<br />

the chance to gain<br />

the three more<br />

wickets he needed<br />

to reach a 500<br />

wicket milestone.<br />

inspired them with real mentors.

Fascinating stories emerge as<br />

archive collection is digitised<br />

ON OCTOBER 20 1862, the<br />

Albion Cricket Club wrote to the<br />

city council expressing outrage<br />

about a young man who insisted<br />

on riding his horse through<br />

cricket games in Latimer Square.<br />

Meanwhile on July 5, 1862,<br />

Officer of Customs W G Carver<br />

wrote to the city council<br />

wanting to step down from<br />

his responsibility for firing the<br />

signal gun every Saturday at 2pm<br />

for the regulation of time for the<br />

public.<br />

These and many more of<br />

our most vulnerable, fragile<br />

and fascinating early records<br />

from the city council archives<br />

collection are now being<br />

digitised.<br />

“We have a very interesting<br />

collection that isn’t very well<br />

known and we’re slowly working<br />

on digitising some of these to<br />

make them more accessible to<br />

the public,” said city council<br />

archivist Annabel Armstrong-<br />

Clarke.<br />

“They make for a wonderful<br />

glimpse into what life must have<br />

been like in the very early days of<br />

Christchurch.”<br />

ONLINE: Early records from the city council archives collection are now being digitised.<br />

PHOTO: NEWSLINE<br />

The most recent digitised<br />

item from the collection to be<br />

published is the first volume of<br />

inward correspondence to the<br />

city council from May 1862 to<br />

<strong>March</strong> 1863.<br />

“We’ve also recently digitised<br />

the Christchurch Municipal<br />

Council minutes and city<br />

surveyor reports from 1862, as<br />

well as a very interesting set of<br />

reports and correspondence<br />

from the Inspector of Nuisances<br />

between 1862 and 1864,”<br />

Armstrong-Clarke said.<br />

“The inspector was appointed<br />

by the council sanitary committee<br />

in 1862 to report ‘nuisances’<br />

relating to rubbish, sewerage,<br />

drainage, health, traffic and<br />

roads. It didn’t seem like a great<br />

job as in 1863 they went through<br />

three inspectors alone.”<br />

The next five items to be<br />

published digitally will include<br />

the city surveyor records from<br />

1864 to 1865 and the Inspector of<br />

Nuisances from 1864.<br />

The archives collection is<br />

governed by the parameters of<br />

the Public Records Act 2005.<br />

Under the act the city council is<br />

required to preserve corporate<br />

records deemed as having<br />

long-term interest, to both aid<br />

accountability and enhance<br />

and promote the historical and<br />

cultural heritage of the city.<br />

Digitising frail archives that<br />

would not otherwise be publicly<br />

accessible fulfils part of those<br />

requirements.<br />

archives collection can be<br />

A NEW AUDIO tour sharing<br />

the heritage and sights along the<br />

Coastal Pathway Te Ara Ihutai is<br />

now freely available online.<br />

In October last year, the<br />

Christchurch Coastal Pathway<br />

Group organised a walking<br />

tour with experts who shared<br />

stories of the people who lived<br />

along the pathway and explained<br />

ecological features surrounding<br />

it. The tour was part of the<br />

Christchurch Heritage Festival<br />

and was attended by 80 participants.<br />

An intangible heritage grant<br />

from the city council and funds<br />

raised by the pathway group<br />

were used to professionally<br />

produce the audio tour from<br />

recordings on the day.<br />

The tour is available by clicking<br />

the “Tour” button on the<br />

group’s website: http://ccp.org.nz.<br />

The tour starts at Ferrymead<br />

We hope the tour will help<br />

locals and visitors understand<br />

the rich heritage and resources,<br />

both natural and man-made,<br />

surrounding the pathway.<br />

As always, thank you for your<br />

patience while the pathway is<br />

being built. We’re excited the<br />

first part of the new Moncks <strong>Bay</strong><br />

section is now open to the public.<br />

Contractor Fulton Hogan is<br />

working on the last phase of the<br />

project, which again will require<br />

restricting the road to a single<br />

lane.<br />

The team is doing its best to<br />

limit its impact on your commute<br />

time. Give the alternative<br />

route via Lyttelton a try if you<br />

want to avoid the traffic.<br />

Please continue to look after<br />

our road workers by sticking<br />

to the reduced 30kph speed<br />

limit when driving through<br />

the roadworks. Also look for<br />

merging cyclists and pedestrians<br />

at temporary crossings.<br />

• Feel free to contact<br />

the Coastal Pathway<br />

Group at http:ccp.org.nz<br />

with any questions<br />

or comments.<br />

The Christchurch Coastal<br />

Pathway Group had<br />

the initial vision for the<br />

four-metre wide shared<br />

pathway to connect<br />

people, land and the sea.<br />

Its mission is to<br />

promote and facilitate<br />

the creation and use<br />

of an international<br />

standard coastal<br />

pathway extending<br />

from Ferrymead to<br />

Scarborough Beach<br />

for the benefit of<br />

Christchurch residents<br />

and visitors.<br />

Early on, it formed a<br />

governance team with<br />

the city council and the<br />

Waikura Linwood-Central-<br />

Heathcote Community<br />

Board. The group secured<br />

funding to finish the<br />

pathway by applying to<br />

the Government’s shovel<br />

ready fund.<br />

CCPG and the city<br />

council held several<br />

community outreach<br />

events to outline plans.<br />

In late 2021, Fulton<br />

Hogan was awarded the<br />

tender by the city council<br />

and started construction<br />

soon after.<br />

PORT NEWS<br />

Whaka-Ora<br />

partnership<br />

continues<br />

to bloom<br />

The Whaka-Ora collaboration<br />

agreement was recently<br />

re-signed by the five<br />

organisations, renewing the<br />

group for another three years.<br />

The agreement was first signed in<br />

2018 when Christchurch City Council,<br />

Environment Canterbury, Te Hapū o Ngāti<br />

Wheke, Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu and<br />

Lyttelton Port Company started<br />

Whaka-Ora to support the health of<br />

the harbour.<br />

Since then, the group has achieved<br />

significant milestones that support ki uta<br />

ki tai – from the mountain to the sea.<br />

Like the Kaimahi for Nature programme<br />

operating at Living Springs and Rāpaki,<br />

which has reported 15 kilometres of fences<br />

maintained, 11 kilometres of tracks created,<br />

over 35,000 plants in the ground and<br />

over 3,000 predators removed.<br />

Co-chair Yvette Couch-Lewis says that,<br />

to reach new heights over the next three<br />

years, we must remember the past and<br />

the work that has got us to this point.<br />

“This plan came from the community,<br />

and it is important we have buy-in from<br />

them,” says Yvette.<br />

“The magnitude and importance of the<br />

mahi we are doing is woven into the plan<br />

and into the korowai that represents us.”<br />

Co-chair Kirstie Gardener says LPC is<br />

committed to providing support, funding<br />

and expertise to the partnership.<br />

“Whaka-Ora is not only supported by<br />

the five partner organisations but many<br />

groups, community members and research<br />

organisations that have and continue to deliver<br />

outcomes towards the goals,” says Kirstie.<br />

For the co-chairs, it’s not just about<br />

maintaining but improving.<br />

This was reinforced by the governance<br />

team represented by each organisation.<br />

This work encompasses returning the<br />

hills to native forest and wildlife through to<br />

returning the ocean to mahinga kai while<br />

ensuring this is also supported by regulatory<br />

framework at the council.<br />

Having now all signed on, the group will<br />

continue to work together on initiatives<br />

around the harbour.<br />

“A waka can’t be paddled on its own, and<br />

we are stronger together,” says Yvette.<br />

Our half<br />

year results<br />

LPC’s net profit after tax<br />

(NPAT) for the six months<br />

at the end of December 2022<br />

was $12.1 million, despite a<br />

slowdown in the market.<br />

This is ahead of budget but down 2.61%<br />

on the equivalent period last year<br />

($12.4 million).<br />

LPC CEO Kirstie Gardener says the<br />

strong revenue result is pleasing given the<br />

challenging economic environment.<br />

“While certain trades have been<br />

negatively impacted and we have seen<br />

increasing inflation pressures, the overall<br />

result reflects positively on our diversified<br />

revenue streams, including the return of<br />

cruise vessels,” says Kirstie.<br />

A market slowdown and the economy’s<br />

tightening saw container imports fall while<br />

exports remained strong.<br />

Marine, cruise and bulk cargo revenue<br />

remained upbeat due to increased vessel<br />

visits, boosted by the return of large<br />

cruise ships.<br />

“We expect the second half of this year<br />

to be similar to the first half,” says Kirstie.<br />

“Our focus remains on delivering<br />

key infrastructure projects, managing<br />

a challenging environment around<br />

increasing operating costs and playing<br />

our role in supporting the return to<br />

normality and schedule for the container<br />

side of our business.”<br />

Some of LPC’s<br />

half-year highlights:<br />

Large-scale cruise vessels returned<br />

to Whakaraupō/Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

on 27 October 2022 – the first time<br />

since the Christchurch earthquakes.<br />

SailGP Lyttelton Head of Operations<br />

Pete Dawson said Lyttelton ticked all the<br />

boxes and delivered a stunning spectator<br />

experience.<br />

“This event, more than any others, fitted<br />

the inner harbour, stadium-spectator<br />

experience that SailGP was built for,”<br />

says PORT Pete. NEWS<br />

Lyttelton was chosen ahead of Auckland<br />

and Wellington and was the perfect location<br />

for spectators to see racing up close from on<br />

shore and the many vantage points around<br />

the township.<br />

“There was no need to be out on the water<br />

to watch this … the boats were 50–100 metres<br />

from the grandstand,” Pete added.<br />

Stunning pictures of Lyttelton and Banks<br />

Peninsula were sent around the world,<br />

including the millions who watched it<br />

streamed live.<br />

“This was quite different for SailGP<br />

that you have the Port Hills and<br />

Banks Peninsula. Often you would see<br />

skyscrapers in the background, so visually<br />

the backdrop was unique.”<br />

SailGP recognised the ‘unbelievable’<br />

support from the community, council and<br />

Lyttelton Port Company.<br />

“We can’t speak highly enough of the<br />

fantastic footprint, fan zone and entrances<br />

for the public.<br />

“The event could not have been held<br />

without the support of the Lyttelton<br />

Port Company, who made our facilities<br />

available, shutting down the harbour to<br />

commercial traffic so we could run a<br />

safe event.”<br />

The next ITM New Zealand Sail Grand<br />

Prix event will be held in Auckland before<br />

returning to Lyttelton in 2025.<br />

The Eastern Development<br />

Programme continues with new<br />

truck lanes, refrigerated container<br />

towers and electrical work to be<br />

completed by April <strong>2023</strong>.<br />

The new workshop project is<br />

progressing well and will be<br />

completed by the end of the 2022/23<br />

financial year.<br />

Separate projects are about to get<br />

under way to improve the inner<br />

harbour and CityDepot. These<br />

projects will provide better facilities<br />

for customers and enhance these<br />

sites’ safety and environmental<br />

performance.<br />

2 LPC UPDATE <strong>March</strong> <strong>2023</strong>


OUR PEOPLE<br />

Lyttelton<br />

Tug Master<br />

and 18 times<br />

NZ rowing<br />

champion<br />

Ian Smallman has a deep<br />

connection to the water. For<br />

over 26 years, Ian has worked<br />

at LPC, rising from a labourer<br />

in the straddle bay to Tug<br />

Master on the water, skilfully<br />

guiding large vessels in and<br />

out of the harbour.<br />

Ian’s love for the water extended beyond his<br />

work – he was also a New Zealand rowing<br />

champion.<br />

Born in Gisborne, Ian was first introduced<br />

to rowing at Tauranga Boys’ College as a<br />

teenager.<br />

He quickly became passionate about<br />

the sport and competed at the highest<br />

level, winning 18 national rowing titles and<br />

competing in five world championships in<br />

the fours and eights.<br />

Ian’s only regret was not making the 2004<br />

Athens Summer Olympics, ousted by up-andcomer<br />

Eric Murray in the men’s coxless fours.<br />

“Didn’t quite make it … that was my goal,”<br />

says Ian.<br />

Despite his success on the world stage,<br />

rowing was an amateur sport in the late 90s.<br />

Ian’s rowing coach Ray Flanagan got him<br />

a job at LPC at age 22 where he worked in<br />

various positions, including as a relieving<br />

deckhand on the tugs Purau and Godley.<br />

Eventually, Ian landed a job as a Pilot Boat<br />

Skipper, and for the last four years, he has<br />

been a full-time Tug Master.<br />

The 48-year-old’s work as a Tug Master<br />

requires high skill and expertise, guiding<br />

large vessels in and out of the Port in tricky<br />

conditions.<br />

“I love handling the vessel. It’s always fun,<br />

and it’s like playing with a big toy,” smiles Ian.<br />

“There are pressure waves that come<br />

off ships, suction waves, and then there is<br />

the weather, the wharf, obstructions that<br />

you have to negotiate as well. It is always<br />

challenging,<br />

Ian works closely together with Tug<br />

Engineer Dave Price on the tugs Piaka and<br />

Blackadder.<br />

“Having Dave and another set of eyes is<br />

really good. You build up that trust, we are<br />

a team.”<br />

Ian says he likes doing the smaller<br />

Russian trawlers and vessels in and out of<br />

the dry dock.<br />

I enjoy doing the tricky ones – pushing<br />

a container vessel around is basic and<br />

straightforward. Still, it is that skill of<br />

manoeuvring the tug, not putting weight<br />

on the line or not touching the hull holding<br />

position that I enjoy,” he says.<br />

After retiring from rowing competitions,<br />

Ian was asked to help guide the St Margaret’s<br />

College rowing teams and is head coach.<br />

“I am always on the water, whether<br />

it is at work or driving a little dinghy<br />

with a 15 horse outboard giving words of<br />

encouragement to the teenage girls through<br />

the megaphone,” says Ian.<br />

The private girls’ school even has a boat<br />

named after him – the Ian Smallman – in<br />

recognition of their world-class coach.<br />

“It is the only eight in the shed that hasn’t<br />

won, which is frustrating,” he laughs.<br />

Ian credits much of his sporting success<br />

to the support from LPC at the height of<br />

competing on the world stage.<br />

“I worked in the workshop over six<br />

months and then went away and trained and<br />

competed for six months. The company was<br />

really good.”<br />

Outside of work and rowing coaching, Ian<br />

enjoys cycling and spending time with his<br />

family. He has three children – seven-yearold<br />

twins Rosa and Charlie and 11-year-old<br />

Annabelle.<br />

When asked if he owns his boat, he<br />

laughs out loud and says, “Hell no, it’s a<br />

money drain.”<br />

Ian still loves the water, be it fresh or salty,<br />

3 metre swells or like glass.<br />

He is most proud of what he has<br />

accomplished and grateful for the<br />

opportunities that have come his way.<br />

Every day, our Civil<br />

Maintenance Team step into<br />

punts to conduct work around<br />

the harbour.<br />

Skilled carpenters are tasked with completing<br />

maintenance work on the wooden piles and<br />

structures, using punts to access places no<br />

one else can.<br />

Designed to manoeuvre under the<br />

wharves, the punts are small and shallow,<br />

making proper training vital to staying safe.<br />

This includes man-overboard exercises like<br />

the one the team conducted this month.<br />

The exercise saw the team try out different<br />

scenarios where they had to retrieve their<br />

workmates from the water with various<br />

states of injuries.<br />

Two groups of two put their skills and<br />

teamwork to the test, while their workmates,<br />

contractors and port users watched, with<br />

everyone successfully rescued from the water.<br />

While we hope they never have to put this<br />

training into practice, it’s important to know<br />

what to do in an emergency.<br />

International Women’s Day is<br />

across political, environmental,<br />

landscapes.<br />

At LPC, along with celebrating our wāhine<br />

toa who work across the business, it also<br />

provides an opportunity to reflect on<br />

where we can improve.<br />

LPC CEO Kirstie Gardener says we are<br />

at the start of our journey towards a more<br />

diverse and inclusive workplace.<br />

“There is some great work and<br />

initiatives under way, but we can only get<br />

better,” says Kirstie.<br />

“ We need to continue to<br />

embrace equity and equality<br />

because, simply, it is the right<br />

thing to do.” – Kirstie Gardener<br />

Kirstie, the only female CEO of a port in<br />

New Zealand, says her journey hasn’t always<br />

been easy.<br />

“I’ve had to juggle being a woman, a mother,<br />

a partner and a leader and a career builder – it<br />

takes resilience and it takes energy.<br />

“It’s about surrounding yourself with<br />

genuine, diverse, positive people of all genders,<br />

ages and ethnicities.”<br />

LPC staff had the chance to do that when<br />

a panel hosted by Christchurch City Holdings<br />

Limited (CCHL) brought together women<br />

across the group to talk about this year’s<br />

theme – equity.<br />

The speakers shared their journeys, stories<br />

and experiences, along with answering<br />

tough questions.<br />

TREASURES FROM THE PAST 17<br />

An eggscellent Lyttelton innovation<br />

JAMES TALBOT Norton<br />

arrived in New Zealand in 1873<br />

aged about 20; as a pastry cook<br />

he was well-suited to take over a<br />

Lyttelton bakery then run by a<br />

Mr Lanyon.<br />

In 1896, Norton named his<br />

burgeoning firm the Lyttelton<br />

Bread Company. It would<br />

become famous for its bread<br />

improver, compressed yeast and<br />

most notably, its egg preserver.<br />

The man himself became a<br />

prominent Lyttelton resident<br />

with numerous civic positions,<br />

including stints as Methodist<br />

Church trustee, Trinity Tennis<br />

Club vice president, Lyttelton<br />

Seamen’s Institute president,<br />

Borough Councillor, and deputy<br />

and acting Mayor.<br />

Norton attended the United<br />

Bakers’ Association’s first conference<br />

in Wellington in 1901 and<br />

again in 1902. His “Dorex” malt<br />

flour was a popular product, but<br />

it was his egg preservative recipe<br />

that was responsible for his<br />

name acquiring household fame.<br />

“Norton’s Premier Egg Preserver”<br />

became one of the most<br />

popular brands on the market<br />

and was promoted at trade fairs<br />

across New Zealand.<br />

Prior to the introduction of<br />

large-scale battery farming, hens<br />

were kept in domestic yards and<br />

laid only in spring and summer.<br />

To have a supply of eggs over<br />

winter required some form of<br />

preservation to seal out oxygen;<br />

methods included coating eggs<br />

with butter or lard, liquid paraffin<br />

or isinglass (a gelatin made<br />

from fish swim bladders), or<br />

gum arabic (made from the sap<br />

of certain Acacia tree species).<br />

Detailed instructions for Norton’s<br />

water glass method were<br />

provided on the packaging of his<br />

distinctively branded tins and<br />

in the recipe books his company<br />

also produced. It was recommended<br />

the eggs were best used<br />

in baking, as botulism could be<br />

a risk with such methods of long<br />

keeping.<br />

Ingredients were not listed but<br />

it is most likely that the preservative<br />

contained sodium silicate, a<br />

glassy solid that dissolves in water<br />

to form an alkaline solution,<br />

in use since the early 1800s.<br />

Instructions were as follows:<br />

“To one part PRESERVER add<br />

20 parts water, preferably boiled,<br />

but cold (good drinking water is<br />

satisfactory). Mix well and when<br />

COOL half fill a tin or jar with<br />

the mixture and place fresh eggs<br />

therin<br />

(sic),<br />

leaving 1 to<br />

2 inches of solution over the eggs<br />

at all times. Cover the container<br />

well to lessen evaporation or use<br />

a tin with press on lid. Store in<br />

an airy, and the coolest place<br />

available. Before the eggs are<br />

required for cooking remove a<br />

supply for the week – they keep<br />

well for many weeks but during<br />

hot weather are better in the<br />

liquid.<br />

This preserver is excellent for<br />

removing old varnish or paint,<br />

also cleaning woodwork and<br />

porcelain. Ideal for hardening<br />

and waterproofing concrete . . .<br />

DO NOT USE ON GLASS!”<br />

Norton’s first premises at<br />

15-17 Oxford St comprised a<br />

one-storey cake shop called<br />

the Excelsior Tearooms or JT<br />

Norton’s Refreshment Rooms,<br />

with a bakehouse at the rear and<br />

a separate grocer’s store on the<br />

site.<br />

In 1913, business<br />

was profitable<br />

enough that a two<br />

storey brick building<br />

was constructed<br />

by local builders<br />

Hollis and Brown.<br />

This substantial<br />

building featured<br />

the Excelsior dance<br />

hall on the first<br />

floor, with the Norton<br />

egg preserver<br />

factory at the rear.<br />

With its sprung<br />

wooden floor,<br />

the Excelsior<br />

Hall became an<br />

important social<br />

hub in the early 20th<br />

century, hosting<br />

dances, bands and<br />

even roller skating<br />

competitions –<br />

and providing<br />

the backdrop for<br />

many a romantic<br />

partnership.<br />

Norton died<br />

in 1947, aged 84,<br />

having famously<br />

provided eggs<br />

for the Antarctic<br />

explorations of Scott<br />

and Shackleton and<br />

putting Lyttelton on the<br />

map with his innovation and<br />

enterprise.<br />

At the time of the February<br />

22, 2011 earthquake, the<br />

Norton’s building had become<br />

quite run down and was up for<br />

sale, although being partially<br />

tenanted by a souvenir shop and<br />

opportunity shop on the ground<br />

floor. Not since built upon, the<br />

site is currently used as the art<br />

studio of Falco Sculpture, where<br />

Simon Max Bannister crafts<br />

striking environmental and<br />

mythological themed sculptures<br />

from wood and bronze.<br />

After a childhood filled with poverty and neglect, Beyah Grim finally has<br />

two months before she’s finally free to change her life for the better, an<br />

unexpected death leaves her homeless and forced to spend the remainder<br />

of her summer in Texas with a father she barely knows. Devastated and<br />

anxious for the summer to go by quickly, Beyah has no time or patience<br />

for Samson, the wealthy, brooding guy next door. Yet, the connection<br />

between them is too intense to ignore. But with their upcoming futures<br />

sending them to opposite ends of the country, the two decide to maintain<br />

Te Aratai College:<br />

Who We Are and How We Get There<br />

At Te Aratai College we have four uara-values that we use to inform what is important in the<br />

teaching and learning that occurs in our space.<br />

The uara-values that we hold dear and<br />

celebrate are: Manaakitanga, Whanaungatanga,<br />

Rangatiratanga and Tūrangawaewae. They<br />

embody our way of being so we encourage<br />

and practise our uara in everything we do, from<br />

our school philosophy through to our teaching<br />

spaces, curriculum and relationships.<br />

We start with Tūrangawaewae as the basis<br />

of our learning. When a student feels a sense<br />

of belonging they can then begin to build<br />

on the other uara. In our tohu-logo we see<br />

Tūrangawaewae in the base, the waka we share<br />

and navigate together.<br />

There have been a number of ākonga-learners<br />

recently demonstrating Tūrangawaewae for<br />

our kura. One group is our Pacific students<br />

representing Te Aratai College at Canterbury<br />

Polyfest. We were so proud to see this group<br />

of performers in a vibrant celebration of Pacific<br />

culture, language and identity through song and<br />

dance.<br />

Manaakitanga and Whanaungatanga are<br />

symbolised in our logo as the awa-rivers,<br />

representing the Ōtākaro and Ōpāwaho rivers,<br />

either side of the central maunga-mountain.<br />

Manaakitanga is the process of showing respect,<br />

generosity and care for others. Whanaungatanga<br />

is a relationship through shared experiences<br />

providing people with a sense of belonging.<br />

These uara are the life force that brings our<br />

students together. When a learner feels<br />

connected to their kura they can create<br />

relationships for learning and life-long friendships.<br />

They also learn how to care for themselves,<br />

each other and their environment. Ākonga who<br />

epitomise these uara are at the heart of what<br />

makes a community.<br />

Recently, Te Aratai learner<br />

Dormay Lasafio represented<br />

Canterbury in the Rugby League<br />

Nines Tournament and received<br />

the MVP, as well as representing<br />

Canterbury in the UC Rugby Cup<br />

last year. Dormay, and her sister<br />

Alexsandra, have also received<br />

Toloa Scholarships. These<br />

scholarships are awarded to Pacific<br />

students excelling in STEAM<br />

(Science, Technology, Engineering,<br />

Arts and Maths) subjects.<br />

These successes showcase<br />

Dormay’s connection to<br />

her community, her teamwork, and her<br />

ambassadorship.<br />

In a similar vein, Ashlin Chandra is a<br />

recent graduate of Te Aratai College who<br />

has featured in local and national media<br />

for her philanthropy. Ashlin was part of<br />

the Generation Give programme that<br />

helps young leaders give back to their<br />

communities, while being a role model for<br />

other youngsters. Her dedication to helping<br />

young people with their mental health,<br />

education, and escaping poverty, helped<br />

raise $20,000 for Generation Give. Her dedication<br />

and passion for helping others was recently<br />

recognised nationally, with her being awarded a<br />

scholarship by the Milford Foundation to help with<br />

her tertiary studies.<br />

Rangatiratanga is our final uara-value.<br />

Rangatiratanga is associated with sovereignty<br />

but extends itself to leadership, autonomy, and<br />

self-determination. In our tohu-logo we recognize<br />

the central maunga-mountain as Pae Maunga<br />

- Kā Tiritiri o Te Moana, the Southern Alps. The<br />

line in the middle represents the pathway<br />

our students take on their journey; their selfactualisation,<br />

the lofty mountain to which<br />

they strive and aspire to.<br />

Te Aratai College nurtures future leaders and<br />

encourages ākonga-learners to demonstrate<br />

Rangatiratanga in everything they do.<br />

Over the last couple of years learners<br />

in our senior Social Science Business<br />

courses have secured spots on conference<br />

trips to learn about entrepreneurship in<br />

China, Latin America, and an immersive<br />

two-day “Entrepreneurs in<br />

Action’’ course in Wellington.<br />

Te Aratai has also had many<br />

successful teams from our Year<br />

13 business classes competing<br />

in the Young Enterprise Scheme<br />

(YES), a competition where<br />

students learn key business skills<br />

and compete against schools<br />

nationally by setting up their own<br />

businesses. Recently, teams<br />

have been featured extensively<br />

in local media and received a<br />

lot of positive feedback from the<br />

community, including local MPs,<br />

news media, and even taking the<br />

title of winners of the 2019 Canterbury Young<br />

Enterprise product launch. This course has<br />

become a hotbed of creativity and leadership in<br />

Te Aratai College.<br />

We have also been honoured with further<br />

examples of Rangatiratanga with our graduating<br />

students receiving an impressive number of<br />

tertiary scholarships. Last year we had leaving<br />

Yr 13s who received over $500,000 (yes, over<br />

half a million dollars!) in university scholarships.<br />

These deserving students demonstrated a wide<br />

range of value requirements across several<br />

universities: academic achievement, resilience,<br />

leadership, excellence, cultural contributions,<br />

social engagement, overcoming adversity, and<br />

many other indicators. These scholarships<br />

provided an amazing boost for these young<br />

people jump-starting their tertiary journey, with<br />

the fees, cash, catered accommodation, summer<br />

school programmes and mentoring support they<br />

provided.<br />

We are delighted that our uara-values contribute<br />

to our learners’ positive pathways.<br />

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz<br />

What will local government look like?<br />

Environment<br />

Canterbury<br />

Deputy Chair Craig Pauling<br />

IT’S EASY to be swayed by the<br />

view that bigger is better, and that<br />

larger organisations can use their<br />

size to generate savings, create<br />

efficiencies and reduce costs.<br />

But being bigger doesn’t necessarily<br />

mean a better outcome,<br />

especially if you’re merging<br />

organisations with very different<br />

responsibilities, values and skill<br />

sets – particularly where one of<br />

those organisations is there to<br />

regulate the other.<br />

The role, function and performance<br />

of local and regional<br />

government is always topical<br />

– for good reason. We collect<br />

your money to deliver local and<br />

regional services – which not<br />

everyone sees as critical to them,<br />

but we are required to do by law.<br />

These matters have been magnified<br />

recently by public debate<br />

on Three Waters, as well as the<br />

Government’s Future for Local<br />

Government review, which could<br />

have far-reaching consequences<br />

for who does what, what gets<br />

prioritised, and how everything<br />

is funded.<br />

Some have also suggested a<br />

unitary authority for Greater<br />

Christchurch, or a super-city<br />

model – but what is this? Will it<br />

be better than the status quo –<br />

particularly when we consider<br />

the challenges we face in relation<br />

to climate change, water and<br />

biodiversity degradation, as<br />

well as upholding the Treaty of<br />

Waitangi?<br />

As the regional government,<br />

Environment Canterbury manages<br />

air quality, land and water<br />

use, biodiversity and region-wide<br />

planning. We’re also responsible<br />

for public transport services<br />

(bus and ferry networks), the<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong>master’s Office, protection<br />

from flooding and river<br />

management, environmental<br />

incident response and regional<br />

Civil Defence Emergency Management.<br />

This work is long-term,<br />

geographically diverse, and focused<br />

on ensuring the protection<br />

of our unique natural resources.<br />

Local councils manage things<br />

like roading, building consents,<br />

subdivision, land use and<br />

development and community<br />

facilities, including libraries.<br />

REVIEW: The Future for Local Government review is<br />

exploring all aspects of what local and regional councils do.<br />

Like Three Waters, it could have far-reaching consequences.<br />

They also manage supply of<br />

drinking water and wastewater<br />

services. This work is more<br />

people-focused and provides the<br />

facilities and services needed for<br />

communities.<br />

A unitary authority would<br />

have all the responsibilities set<br />

out above – and while this may<br />

seem attractive – we should consider<br />

what this may mean, what<br />

could be lost and whether alternatives<br />

may, in fact, be better.<br />

For example, regional councils<br />

currently administer consents<br />

to local councils – providing an<br />

important stewardship role as<br />

well as providing clear separation<br />

between the use and management<br />

of our precious natural<br />

resources.<br />

Environment Canterbury<br />

provides the regional perspective<br />

and planning across Waitaha<br />

Canterbury, assisting with collaboration,<br />

alignment and benefits<br />

– for example, regional land<br />

transport, river and catchment<br />

management, coastal marine<br />

issues, and biodiversity and<br />

biosecurity programmes where<br />

city and district boundaries don’t<br />

always take into account key<br />

environmental factors.<br />

Regional government has also<br />

led the way in building stronger<br />

and more meaningful relationships<br />

with mana whenua, largely<br />

due to the shared interests in<br />

natural resource and environmental<br />

management that iwi and<br />

hapū hold along with the responsibilities<br />

of regional councils.<br />

These relationships are vital for<br />

our future and will enable us to<br />

confront the key environmental<br />

challenges we face.<br />

There will be change, that’s for<br />

certain. The review is exploring<br />

all aspects of what local and<br />

regional councils do, including<br />

funding, how we give effect to<br />

te Tiriti o Waitangi areas of responsibility,<br />

and involvement of<br />

the community in decisions.<br />

It’s important there is full understanding<br />

of exactly what any<br />

new form and function for local<br />

government actually means. Ultimately,<br />

it must deliver a healthy<br />

and thriving environment and<br />

one where Waitaha Canterbury<br />

remains a fantastic place to live,<br />

work and enjoy.<br />

We need to ensure we design<br />

a system that our grandchildren<br />

will thank us for, one that is able<br />

to confront the key challenges we<br />

are facing. This is what Environment<br />

Canterbury is committed<br />

to and we look forward to working<br />

with our communities, Ngāi<br />

Tahu, central government and all<br />

our local councils to achieve.<br />

Toitu te marae a tane; Toitu te<br />

Masjeed An Nur to present the Islamic Community with a book of<br />

peaceful messages that utilised different languages found within<br />

<strong>2023</strong> Canterbury Polyfest<br />

Villa Maria College students took part in the Canterbury Polyfest<br />

recently. The event is a celebration of Pasifika culture and provides<br />

an opportunity for secondary school students to showcase<br />

traditional dance, music and customs.<br />

Nia Fenika-Slater, Year 12, performed a traditional Taualuga, a<br />

Samoan traditional<br />

dance only performed<br />

by the Taupou (Nia’s<br />

role). The Taupou is a<br />

very special role to be<br />

given, and in this case<br />

reflects Nia’s closeness<br />

to her culture, positive<br />

attitude and highperformance<br />

ability.<br />

Nia and her aunty,<br />

brought Nia’s grandmother onto the stage in a wheelchair. This<br />

represented the passing down of culture and honours those<br />

important women in Nia’s life. Villa’s entire polyfest performance<br />

showcased an acknowledgement of the relationships between the<br />

students and key women in their lives.<br />

Addison was selected for Under 15 Canterbury Futsal<br />

Nationals, in the positions of target or flanker. In mid-<br />

December, the team played two games a day in a four-day<br />

tournament in Wellington. The final against Capital Wellington<br />

ended with a 5-3 win to the Canterbury team, placing them at<br />

the top of their game nationally. Congratulations to the team<br />

Youth Commonwealth Games hopefuls<br />

Congratulations<br />

to Brooke Bennett<br />

being named on the<br />

Swimming NZ “Long<br />

List” for the Youth<br />

Commonwealth Games<br />

to be held in August in<br />

We wish them all the<br />

best in trying to qualify<br />

for this prestigious<br />

event. We are super<br />

proud of you both!!<br />

Perseverance reaps rewards<br />

Challenging conditions did not deter the Villa Maria equestrian team in the<br />

Inter-secondary School Show Jumping Competition, held at McLeans Island<br />

recently. Despite the rain, the girls showed perseverance, each obtaining a<br />

personal ‘win’. It was awesome to see Ruby and Chilli riding smoothly and<br />

taking the jumps in their stride and getting a 6th in the two phase 105cm.<br />

Congratulations too to Molly and Jimmy. Jimmy loves to jump and earned a<br />

3rd in the 85cm ISO with a beautiful round. There was super work from Lilia<br />

and Pumba. Pumba is developing a nice rhythm and building his confidence<br />

in the ring. Thank you to the mums and dads who supported the girls in the<br />

pouring rain; the sport wouldn’t happen without them.<br />

Based on the popular comic strip, Annie tells the<br />

extraordinary story of a little orphan who ends up in<br />

the lap of luxury with Depression-era billionaire Oliver<br />

Warbucks. Unlike most of the other children at Miss<br />

Hannigan’s orphanage, spunky Annie believes that<br />

her parents are still alive and will one day return to<br />

claim her. So, when Mr. Warbucks offers to adopt her,<br />

she asks the most powerful man in America to help<br />

find her real mom and dad instead, and he agrees.<br />

Warbucks’ whopping reward for Annie’s parents<br />

attracts the attention of con artists Rooster, Lily and<br />

the wicked Miss Hannigan, who hatch a plot to<br />

kidnap Annie and take the $50,000 reward.<br />

Will Annie ever find her parents? Maybe. Will Miss<br />

Hannigan ever find a man and escape the clutches<br />

of Little Girls? Will Rooster and Lily ever live on Easy<br />

Street? Will President Roosevelt provide a ‘New Deal’<br />

for the Hooverites? Will the orphans no longer live a<br />

Hard-Knock life? Only one thing is for certain…<br />

You can bet your bottom dollar that the sun will<br />

come out tomorrow.<br />

The group performed a Siva Samoa. The song was written by one<br />

of the tutors, Seira Ale. Through the song lyrics the girls formally<br />

introduced themselves and stated they were from Villa Maria<br />

College.<br />

Raquel Tikolevu, Year 8, dressed in the black, white and brown<br />

costume, had a special role singing and leading the Fijian song<br />

“Noqu Masu”. Earlier in the performance she was also brought out<br />

by her mother when Noqu Masu was sung.<br />

Well done to all our students who took part, delivering such<br />

beautiful performances.<br />

Crêpes et conversations<br />

On Wednesday 15th February, our Senior French class went to<br />

La Maison de Crêpe to bond over a French meal and conversation.<br />

Students ordered their<br />

meal in French and<br />

talked about their meal<br />

preferences with one<br />

another. We celebrated an<br />

early Mardi Gras in a relaxed<br />

and warm atmosphere.<br />

In the words of Dr Maria<br />

Montessori “Education is<br />

a natural process carried<br />

out by the child and is not<br />

acquired by listening to<br />

words but by experiences<br />

in the environment”.<br />

Fuel-friendly and clean Skoda Kamiq<br />

I’m of the firm opinion that<br />

development of the internal<br />

combustion engine is far from<br />

over, especially in terms of fuel<br />

efficiencies.<br />

Sure, the world is viewing<br />

electric vehicles as the way forward<br />

to combat climate change and our<br />

reliance on fossil fuel, but there<br />

are many petrol engines in today’s<br />

market that run on the smell of<br />

an oily rag and are clean to the<br />

environment.<br />

One such engine is Skoda’s 1-litre<br />

turbocharged three-cylinder unit<br />

that is rated with a 5.8l/100km<br />

combined cycle average and emits<br />

just 131g/km of CO2. As such,<br />

it qualifies for a New Zealand<br />

Government Clear Car Program<br />

rebate of $1870. If you take that<br />

amount off the purchase price –<br />

$38,990 – you are getting a quality<br />

car and one that won’t bite you<br />

much in the way of day-to-day<br />

running costs.<br />

Of course, this engine comes<br />

courtesy of Skoda’s incorporation<br />

into the Volkswagen Group, and it<br />

is one of many fuel-friendly units<br />

that are constantly being placed in<br />

production. I see it as an alternative<br />

to electric power and, what’s more,<br />

it is very traditional in the way<br />

it operates and very much suits<br />

its placement in Skoda’s Kamiq<br />

Scoutline.<br />

The Kamiq’s body shape puts the<br />

vehicle most definitely in the SUV<br />

category, but I’d label it more of a<br />

crossover vehicle. That’s because<br />

it is just a two-wheel-drive (front)<br />

model only, and although the<br />

suspension is raised to give it more<br />

wheel travel and freedom it can’t be<br />

described as anything other than<br />

an all-road vehicle.<br />

The Kamiq is not new to the New<br />

Zealand market, but it has just had<br />

a major refresh with distinctive<br />

styling cues giving it a bolder but<br />

fresh appearance.<br />

Major specification items include<br />

push-button ignition, cruise<br />

control, touch screen display and<br />

safety systems which count towards<br />

a five-star Euro NCAP rating.<br />

What I like about the Kamiq is<br />

its practicality. It is a compact car<br />

at just 4.24m, but it has good space<br />

inside and great load space. Skoda<br />

claims a cargo carrying area of<br />

400-litres extending to 1395-litres<br />

with the rear seats folded down.<br />

At the other end sits the wee<br />

gem of an engine. Developing<br />

85kW and 200Nm, it has healthy<br />

outputs for its 999 cubic capacity.<br />

The turbo isn’t overly boosted so<br />

there is no great rush of power,<br />

but it does have a solid flow of<br />

energy right through the power<br />

band. That’s attributable to where<br />

the power outputs are developed,<br />

CROSSOVER: The Skoda Kamiq is a blend between a<br />

traditional hatchback and a sport utility vehicle.<br />

SKODA KAMIQ SCOUTLINE: Earn a $1870 rebate as part of the Clear Car Programme.<br />

peak power is available from just<br />

5000rpm, while maximum torque<br />

spreads from 2000 to 3500rpm.<br />

These figures result in low down<br />

energy, and that is what you want<br />

in an engine, it churns away with a<br />

characteristic three-cylinder growl,<br />

it is well muffled but there’s no<br />

denying the harmonics associated<br />

with this design.<br />

Drive is channelled through a<br />

seven-speed direct shift gearbox,<br />

this is the Volkswagen group’s<br />

preferred choice of transmission<br />

and it stands out for quick, clean<br />

and smooth shifts.<br />

In terms of acceleration, it will<br />

lunge through a highway overtake<br />

(80 to 120km/h) in 7sec, while<br />

Skoda claims a 9.9sec run from a<br />

standstill to 100km/h, and a top<br />

speed of 191km/h. All of these<br />

figures are remarkable for an<br />

engine that is just under 1-litre.<br />

I took the evaluation car on a<br />

long highway loop taking in the<br />

high country roads and home<br />

through Burnham and Lincoln.<br />

When presented with a handling<br />

challenge the Kamiq steers with<br />

accuracy and there is good<br />

feedback through the steering<br />

wheel.<br />

The Scoutline model has fuel<br />

efficient Good Year tyres (205/55)<br />

sitting on 17in wheels, but there<br />

• Fuel usage –5.8l/100km<br />

is solid grip to be found, and even<br />

with the limitation of tube beam<br />

rear axle, suspension movement is<br />

flexible and the spring and damper<br />

rates are just firmed enough to<br />

contain any gravitational force of<br />

the body over the suspension.<br />

More importantly, ride comfort<br />

in relation to quick cornering isn’t<br />

compromised, the suspension<br />

settings make for an almost perfect<br />

balance, and that’s important on<br />

Christchurch’s mixture of road<br />

surfaces, bumps and ruts are<br />

absorbed beautifully without any<br />

in-cabin shock.<br />

During my time in the<br />

Scoutline the fuel usage readout<br />

was constantly showing around<br />

6.6l/100km with an amazing<br />

4.8l/100km usage at 100km/h,<br />

the engine working over slowly at<br />

just 2250rpm – right in the area of<br />

maximum torque.<br />

I’ve long been a fan of threecylinder<br />

engines, and the Kamiq<br />

in this form really appealed to me.<br />

However, I do realise that some of<br />

the harmonics and driving feel may<br />

not appeal to everyone. That being<br />

the case, there is a four-cylinder<br />

offering in the form of the Kamiq<br />

Monte Carlo, the 1.5-litre unit adds<br />

an extra $9k but it also reaps the<br />

rewards of its efficiency and it is<br />

eligible for an extra $100 from the<br />

Government, its clean car rebate<br />

amounts to $1970.<br />

I’ve experienced this engine<br />

previously and can also report it is<br />

a cracker with its 5.7l/100km fuel<br />

usage average and healthy power<br />

outputs (110kW and 250Nm).<br />

Skoda is also entering the<br />

electric vehicle market with its<br />

Enyaq SUV due to land in New<br />

Zealand soon, but with a foot<br />

in each camp it’s fair to say the<br />

company still sees a future with<br />

internal combustion engines,<br />

and I’ll go as far as to say you can<br />

expect plenty more to arrive that<br />

are as equally or more efficient in<br />

the years to come.<br />

is caught in a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse as she desperately tries to keep her<br />

loved ones out of the line of fire - even if it means sacrificing herself... Bound together<br />

by the invisible wires of their radios, the two women lead parallel lives in their home<br />

cities, as both are betrayed by those they trust the most. But when the Nazis close in on<br />

one of them, only the other can save her... The next gripping and heartbreaking WWII<br />

PARIS - The Memoir<br />

by Paris hilton<br />

The roles Paris embraces as a fully realized woman. With courage, honesty, and<br />

humour, Paris Hilton is ready to take stock, place it all in context and share her<br />

story with the world. Separating the creation from the creator, the brand from the<br />

ambassador, Paris: The Memoir strips away all we thought we knew about a celebrity<br />

icon, taking us back to a privileged childhood lived through the lens of undiagnosed<br />

ADHD, a teenage rebellion that triggered a panicked – and perilous – decision by her<br />

parents. Led to believe they were saving their child’s life, Paris’s mother and father had<br />

her kidnapped and saw her sent to a series of ‘emotional growth boarding schools’,<br />

where she survived almost two years of verbal, physical and sexual abuse. In the<br />

midst of a hell we now call the ‘troubled teen industry’, Paris created a beautiful inner<br />

world where the ugliness couldn’t touch her. She came out, resolving to trust no-one<br />

but herself as she transformed that fantasy world into a multibillion-dollar reality. Paris<br />

shows us her path to peace while she challenges us to question our role in her story<br />

and in our own.<br />

The McCartney Legacy<br />

Volume 1: 1969 - 73 by Allan Kozinn, Adrian Sinclair<br />

Set against the backdrop of the Beatles splintering over both business and creative issues,<br />

The McCartney Legacy: Volume 1: 1969-73 covers a period in which Paul McCartney<br />

recreated himself, both as a man and as a musician. This is an in-depth and revealing<br />

exploration of his creative life beyond the Beatles-featuring hundreds of interviews with<br />

fellow musicians, tour managers, recording engineers, producers, filmmakers, and more.<br />

Beside his extraordinary, creative solo output, he has collaborated with the most influential<br />

artists of his generation and the next: from Elvis Costello to Stevie Wonder, from Michael<br />

Jackson to Dave Grohl, even with Johnny Cash and Kanye West. McCartney, too, has<br />

explored new poetry styles with Allen Ginsburg and teamed up with Peter Martins and<br />

the NYC Ballet to create Ocean’s Kingdom. The list goes on from there. And he has done<br />

all this post-Beatles and while maintaining a mostly normal family life. Paul McCartney<br />

has lived ten lifetimes in the span of one and become increasingly more relevant, yet<br />

curiously, his creative output since the Beatles has never had the full exploration such a<br />

life and body of work demands.<br />

available too."<br />
